Introducing: Supportive Housing Standards

The Supportive Housing Alliance is pleased to publish Supportive Housing Standards for Site-Based Supportive Housing. The standards document can be found here.

The current iteration of the standards was created with significant stakeholder engagement in the interest of universalizing expectations for service and operating models for site-based supportive housing in Minnesota. The Supportive Housing Alliance recommends that funders of site-based supportive housing adopt these standards for organizations and developments they fund that provide site-based supportive housing.

More about the project and process for creating the standards can found here. If you would like to send feedback on the standards to the Supportive Housing Alliance, please send us an email to or fill out the contact form on the website.
